2019 Purlieu ‘Le Pich’ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Le Pich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers brilliant fruit and graceful aromatics wrapped in a seamless satin package. The nose opens with aromas of black cherry, pencil lead and stone. The palate broadens to a lustrous core of ripe boysenberries and blackberries, whose vibrancy gains dimension from the fresh minerality beneath. Full and soft in the mouth, this wine already offers wonderfully silky, mature tannins. Juicy plum and milk chocolate notes develop on the mid-palate and continue through the long finish of black raspberries and mint tea.
Purlieu’s sister label, Le Pich, gets its name from a Wappo Indian term meaning “golden eagle.” They are hunting birds, and you can often spot them above our vineyards as they soar, glide, circle and arc. They are beautiful birds — stately and impressive, but not haughty or boasting, with a nimbleness that’s inspiring. We hope that our Le Pich wines live up to the character of their namesake.
Vinous - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich is a terrific introductory-level wine from Julien Fayard. A rich, opulent wine, Le Pich offers up a compelling mélange of black cherry, plum, chocolate, cloves, new leather and licorice. This bold, sumptuous Cabernet delivers the goods, big time. The 2019 is one of the best editions of Le Pich I can remember tasting."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich is a total charmer, offering lots of black and blue fruits as well as notes of chocolate and leafy herbs. Drink this medium-bodied, round, impressively textured Cabernet Sauvignon over the coming 5-7 years."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich pops with vibrant notes of crushed blueberries, kirsch and boysenberries, plus hints of spice cake and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, softly textured and packed with spicy black fruits, it finishes with impressive length."
